About Motor Sailer Laanemaa

The motor sailer Läänemaa is one of the most notable ships in the history of Estonian cargo fleet. This cargo ship was the first state-of-the-art steel-hulled ship built in Estonia that sailed under the same name until the end. The ship was designed by one of the most skilled shipbuilding engineers, Lieutenant Captain Nikolai Link, according to the highest-class requirements of the German insurance association Lloyd. On 6 December 1919, a ceremonial keel-laying took place at the Petrograd Shipyard (formerly and later Noblessner); the ship became seaworthy by 5 August 1922, when a test voyage was made.
